TBR Lows and Highs #3

TBR Lows and Highs

TBR Lows and Highs is a weekly meme hosted by Howling Libraries.

Rules:

  • Link back to the original post at Howling Libraries
  • Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending
  • Find 5-10 (or more, if you feel ambitious!) titles to purge from your TBR (the “lows”)
    • ALTERNATIVE OPTION: Find 5+ titles that are at the BOTTOM of your TBR—books you want to read someday, just not right now!
  • Post those 5 books in the list, with a brief explanation
  • Next, sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, descending
  • List the last 5 (or more!) books you added to your TBR, with a synopsis or your brief summary of why you added it (the “highs”)

The Lows

I decided to be a bit more aggressive with knocking books off of my TBR. I am adding more than I am removing at the moment. I am deleting more Laurell Hamilton. I may get back to her books someday, but I don’t feel like I need to allow them to take up that much space on my TBR anymore. Also, I occasionally will pick up a Sandra Brown and I enjoy her writing, but I will just add her books to my Goodreads as I read them.

  1. Obsidian Butterfly (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #9) by Laurell Hamilton
  2. Blue Moon (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #8) by Laurell Hamilton
  3. Narcissus in Chains(Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #10) by Laurell Hamilton
  4. Cerulean Sins (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #11) by Laurell Hamilton
  5. Wicked Lovely(Wicked Lovely, #1) by Melissa Marr 
  6. Envy by  Sandra Brown
  7. Chill Factor by  Sandra Brown
  8. The Alibi by  Sandra Brown
  9. The Crush by  Sandra Brown
  10. Dark Rivers of the Heart by Dean Koontz
